Can Biotin Help to Prevent Hair Loss?

Biotin, also known as Vitamin H, is a vitamin that aids in the healthy growth of hair, skin, and nails. Scientists say most people get enough biotin in their regular diets to experience the benefits it has to offer, but many people have begun turning to biotin supplements. These supplements may improve the keratin structure of your skin and nails, but what about hair growth? Some doctors prescribe biotin to patients who are experiencing hair loss.

Side Effects

One dermatologist, Dr. Wilma Bergfeld, said biotin is very helpful for people struggling with hair disorders and hair loss. Bergfeld said biotin can keep the hair follicle healthy, which in turn will help prevent hair loss, or alopecia, in both men and women.

But, some people who take biotin supplements experience negative side effects. The research into biotin is still growing, but scientists have found that some patients experience cramping, nausea, and diarrhea after incorporating biotin into their routines. If you would rather get biotin from foods than a pill, researchers have identified egg yolks, bananas, cauliflower, mushrooms, nuts, and whole grains as great sources of the vitamin.

What the Research Says

Though the research into biotin’s benefits is still growing and opinions about its efficacy are changing, most doctors agree that biotin supplements are most useful if you are already experiencing hair loss. This could mean that you are experiencing a biotin deficiency, which is rare but does happen, according to Healthline. Adding biotin to your diet could reverse scaly rashes and alopecia in men and women. One study also found that participants who took a marine protein supplement containing biotin saw improved hair growth and hair strength after 90 days.
